The work is a close-to-silent homage to the piano concert genre. A work based on clichés in a silencing universe. The piano functions both as a percussion instrument and as a narrative monster from the past with its big chords in A minor and G Major. The piano concert is in four movements.The work is based on a technique used in some of my previous works. The instrument is already pre-recorded, and the sound of it only comes out by touching the piano keys without pressing them down. It works with a lot of contact microphones that respond to the sound of the pianist’s nails touching the keys. In this piano concerto, the pre-recorded material isn’t fixed in an audio file, but instead another pianist behind the scenes is playing on a midi keyboard to control it live. Only the last movement is fixed because of an extremely important relation in tempo in the material. The work is composed for SWR Symfoni Orchestra & Eclat Festival.
Freunde is a work for 4 musicians and a computer. The work is in 5 movements and composed on a game between the musicians and the computer. Four people sit in a circle with a computer in the middle. The work has been created by some simple rules of play that the musicians must remember and a primitive computer function that responds to sounds from the four people. The musicians need to memorize the hole piece, and it requires that they both know the score and the rules of the game. The piece is composed for Ensemble Scenatet.

Four Hyperrealistic Songs for Quintet was composed in 2015 for Defunensemble. The music is an exaggeratedly clichéd piece of contemporary music. The work is based on a technique were the tape (behind every instrument) can only be heard when you play on the instruments. The piece is written to Defunensemble.
SEXTET is based on a renaissance love song “N’aurai-je Jamais Mieux” by Robert Morton.I composed a short piece build on the song for Athelas Sinfonietta in 2010 and then I re-composed it for London Sinfonietta in 2014.
